Dell aims to deliver the perfect technology solution for a diverse set of users with varying requirements and usage patterns. With the launch of the new Dell Precision M3800, Dell is accounting for the technology needs of high-end users, offering great performance specs in workstations built specifically for such users. The new Dell Precision M3800 offers the processing power needed to go through large files, allowing users to access and utilize this data on the move.
The Precision now has even more to offer
The Dell Precision M3800 is available with 4K Ultra HD (3840×2160) resolution and IGZO2 technology on its vivid 15.6-inch UltraSharp™ touch display made with Corning Gorilla Glass NBT, delivering rich, saturated color and stunning brightness, and enabling customers to view their content in even greater detail than was possible before.

The Dell Precision M3800 display also features ten-finger multi-touch, providing customers with an intuitive way to interact with the workstation.
Dell is expanding its ecosystem by adding a Thunderbolt™ 2 port to the Dell Precision M3800, so users can take advantage of transfer speeds up to 20Gbps, enabling viewing and editing of raw 4K video, while backing up the same file in parallel. Intel’s revolutionary Thunderbolt™ 2 technology delivers the fastest, most versatile connection, simultaneously supporting high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a single, compact port.[i]
As film, animation and design projects often require managing large graphic and data-intensive files on-the-go, Dell has added additional storage options and increased total available internal storage on the Dell Precision M3800 up to 2TB, which is double the solid-state drive (SSD) storage capacity offered by competitors. Boasting the same unmatched portability and sleek design as the previous generation, the new Dell Precision M3800 has a starting weight of just 1.88kg and a form factor that is less than 18mm thick. Packed with a 4th generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, professional grade NVIDIA Quadro K1100M graphics, and up to 16GB of memory, the system delivers the power necessary to handle even the most demanding applications and workloads. The Dell Precision M3800 is ISV-certified for running professional software applications, guaranteeing optimal performance and support.
“Intel’s 4th generation Core i7 quad-core mobile processor, Intel Thunderbolt™[ii]technology and Intel SSDs in the latest Dell Precision M3800 provide professionals with a great balance between performance, power, professional I/O and slim design – outstanding capabilities for professionals on the go,” said Frank Soqui, General Manager of Intel’s Technical Compute Cloud and Client. “Thunderbolt docking completes the design for ease of expandability for professional workstation needs.”
To demonstrate the performance benefits afforded by choosing a certified mobile workstation for video editing and viewing, Dell Inc. commissioned a study from research firm Principled Technologies[iii]comparing the Dell Precision M3800 and the Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display across a number of resource-intensive tasks commonly performed in Adobe Premiere Pro Creative Cloud. The Dell Precision M3800 outperformed the Apple MacBook Pro, taking up to 26 percent less time to transcode video, rendering video sequences up to 30 percent faster, and dropping less frames during video playback. It also delivered lower surface temperatures when running an intensive workload, and unlike the MacBook Pro, the Dell Precision M3800 is ISV-certified for running professional software applications, guaranteeing optimal performance and support.
Superior Design, Superb Performance
“When video professionals work with the latest advancements such as Ultra HD and 4K+, they don’t want to be held back by their hardware or software limitations,” said Simon Williams, Director of Strategic Alliances at Adobe.“Adobe’s collaboration with Dell showcases the continued innovations the companies bring to creatives, enabling them to be far more efficient, more mobile, and more fluid in their projects. The result: video professionals working with Adobe Creative Cloud including Adobe Premiere Pro Creative Cloud are now delivering amazing, cutting-edge projects that push all the boundaries. It’s an exciting time.”
